Specifically designed for the veterinary surgeon, Speed Mam ColorTM can be used for simultaneous bacterial identification and antibiotic sensitivity testing within 24 to 48 h.

Speed Mam ColorTM delivers an antibiogram directly to the sample, to mimic natural conditions.

Speed Mam ColorTM helps to improve advice given to farmers and establish a justified prescription.

Why use Speed Mam Color TM ?


Over 37% of cows suffer from at least one episode of mastitis per lactation. Determining the etiological agent of mastitis by simply observing the signs has a reliability of only 62% (2).

 

Bacteriological diagnosis is a vital complement to the epidemiological suspicion. It ensures a reasoned prescription that is adapted to the herd's situation (3).

The evolution of mammary infections in herds necessitates regular bacteriological monitoring to adapt the prophylactic measures and the treatment plan (3).

When use Speed Mam Color TM ?

Speed Mam ColorTM can be used to isolate and identify the agents responsible for an outbreak of clinical disease.

Following therapeutic failure or relapse, Speed Mam ColorTM gives a precise etiological diagnosis and determines the antibiotic resistance profile.

Speed Mam ColorTM can be used on several samples from the same herd for epidemiological monitoring and the periodic evaluation of the efficacy of the treatment plan.
